Elopements & Intimate Weddings

The JWP Wedding Experience

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WHAT MATTERS MOST

With smaller intimate weddings and elopements, you still want a beautiful and unforgettable day, and you also want photos to bring you tears of joy!  As wedding storytellers, we believe that the culmination of our creative artistry is when you feel the same we-just-got-married joy every time you look back on your wedding photos, view them on the walls of your homes, and page through your wedding album with your family years from now. 

But we are more than just your photographer, we are your guide to a different kind of wedding day.  When you choose to   elope in Iowa, we’re here to share with you all of our favorite hidden spots that look just like the mountains of Colorado, sandy beaches, or European estates.   Yes, we can give you a dream destination elopement right here in Iowa!

Or perhaps you’re having a smaller intimate wedding, and just want to have a beautiful day with your closest family and best friends.  You deserve the best, no matter how big or small your wedding may be.  And we’re here to make sure that happens from start to finish.

When you plan an intimate wedding or elopement, it refocuses everything and simplifies your priorities.  It’s about celebrating your commitment to one another, either privately, or with the most important people in your life.

you adore timeless imagery

Gorgeous timeless imagery takes your breath away. You recognize beautiful light and classic colors, and you know you don't want your wedding photos stuck with Instagram-like filters that will date them.

YOU LOVE EMOTIONAL IMAGERY

Images of moments, no matter how imperfect, are treasured highly. You're not afraid to live in the moment, shed a few tears, or raise a glass and enjoy the party.
